'With two hundred photographs, charts and diagrams in the text and supplement'. 351 pages. Typescript for publication. It would seem that the document as a whole was never printed, but sections were adapted for publication in the Journal of Ecology (see Publication Notes).

"Flora of the Isle of Purbeck, and (other Dorset Plants), nomenclature & arrangements as per "The London Catalogue of British Plants", Edition 10". By C. B. Green.

Drawings by J. W. Salter, intended for C. C. Babington's work 'The British Rubi', but not ready by the time the volume was published (see Publication Notes). Pencil drawings pasted into the volume the majority partially (about half) coloured, often with Latin name, and date and location. Includes some printed version of some of the drawings. Also includes account of payments due from Babington to Salter for the work.
Correspondence, drafts of publications, research notes, reviews, papers on talks and teaching, personal information on career.
Various catalogues, plant lists and an account book.
Includes correspondence, notes, scientific papers, newscuttings and photographs. Also includes papers of Redcliffe Salaman's wife Nina Salaman.
Compendium of the Linnaean system of botany, with two introductory 'lectures' addressed to 'Dear Mary' (possibly Home's daughter), for whom the work was compiled.
Covers primarily works between 1400 and 1764, although also includes brief entries on particularly notable historic works. Contains index by author, but only from A to K.
Anonymous. Each page has a heading with Latin names for plants, many of which are followed by watercolours, with date and location of painting, and name in English, while many pages are left blank aside from title.
